    Hey,

    I'm on leopard with the latest iTunes.

    I downloaded 4.0 with Safari and it reads it as a zip I think, I tried changing it back with the .ipsw extension but iTunes reads it as seperate folders... what do I do??

    Don't download using Safari. Try using Chrome or Firefox.

    Safari will automatically make it into a .zip file, or something like that. It will mess it up.

    Yeah, when I had a Mac it made it a .zip every time. Just use Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or anything else. Oh and for error 14, try recovery and DFU mode restores.

    I'm using VMWare and 10.5.5 with the latest iTunes.

    I downloaded the firmware from Firefox in my Windows 7, then put it on a CD and loaded it that way through iTunes - iTunes read the .IPSW no problem, verified it and then when it goes to "preparing for iPhone for Restore" and it re-boots whenever it booted back up it would never do the actual restore...

    I have a feeling it's something to do with the drivers; It pops outta VM back into Windows.. I think.

    Yeah, virtual machines never go well when you are trying to use a device. Try a dual boot hackint0sh or ask someone if you can use their Mac for a few minutes.
